Some members of the Riding for Disabled squadrons will be playing an important role too. Three special needs children, who attend Clarendon School in Hampton, Hannah Roberts, Molly Mead and Kane Crack are excited about their part in the proceedings.
During the afternoon the Royal visitors will be shown hands-on exhibits, demonstrations, public displays and music performances. The Horse Rangers are among the organisations to have an information & fund-raising stand. It all starts at 11am on the Rugby Pitches Richmond Park, which will be renamed The Jubilee Fields.
The Horse Rangers Association (Hampton Court) is a charity which supports the personal development of children and young people, regardless of background or ability, by teaching them to ride and look after horses. Over 400 members attend each week, including those with special needs."
